cheers for a football team, there's a catch, they cannot hear the cheers. >> we have the story of a football success from the east bay and boy, they are underdogs aren't they? >> they are the true definition of underdogs. you think of team work and you can find so many examples in sports, but not a story like this. one of true champions in every sense of the word. with every play, some of them a little wild, their confidence soared, even against the bigger teams. >> peopleere not sure we could handle the big boys. nobody on our team is over 200 pounds. >> size was not a challenge, every player on the eagles football team and their coach are deaf. >> we had to adapt. >> in his first year as head coach, he led the team to a 10-2 record, winning the north central two bay league title.
beating out seven or schools, none of them dealing with the same disadvantage. >> the boys were excited. we have not beat that school in a long time. >> this year they beat them twice. >> they have got a triple threat communication method. and signing and using posters. >> very effective, because it catches the defense off guard. >> and he played to his team's streng strengths, small and quick. >> we keep moving, no huddle and it put us on the map. >> and the greatest payoff has been the on doubters. >> i can see they think we are nothing and they can beat us and they have a big ego and fat head and we get angry when we see that, and we show them we are better than them. >> now a band of brothers that say, their bond cannot be broken on or off the field. >> you cannot play with your own passion, you have to play with
the brotherhood for your team. >> and that was the chant there at the end of every game. they played in the underdog competition and they may win that title. you can still catch many of the players in action in other sports. >> that is a great, great story. kudos to them. >> okay, do we have the flashlights and everything is ready? because it's coming isn't it, jeff? >> yeah, strong storms that could gust higher than 50 miles an hour. that first storm system lining up off shore and it's expansive, stretching the entire length of california off shore and parallel to oregon. the core of the storm is out 500 miles. we will not see the center of the storm move to us. but a strong band will be
pushing over as we head throughout tomorrow morning. already some of them reports are 20-35 miles an hour. no doubt, for the morning hours we will see the wind materialize. let's get outside the live hd sky camera network tonight, there's some of the wind, 20 miles an hour in san francisco, san bernardino mountain, it will be stormy, and visibility will be cut in half. we will track it at 4:30, you can send in your pictures to news tips@nbc bay area.com. let's go back to what is happening with the storm. winds will increase and pick up and the first band of heavy rainfall unfortunately timed for the early morning commute. 6: 00 a.m., things will be ramping up. that is where some of the heaviest rain will be, take longer to get back here to you in the east bay and south bay,
but throughout 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 it will get to pleasanton and san jose, we cannot rule out isolated possibilities that some thunderstorms in the afternoon, but the heavier consistent rainfall will be done. then we will look at the second storm system this week as we go throughout this afternoon, into the north bay, it will be slow going, all the way through thursday, it will march to the south, for the east in the south bay, you may not get in on the second round of heavy rain until friday morning. again, wednesday and friday morning, the toughest on those commutes here across the bay area. and in terms of wind, we have been showing you this quite a bit. look at the zone, as we head into 9:00 and 10:00 tomorrow morning. that could be 50 miles across the bay area, i don't think that everyone will see winds at 50 miles an hour, that is an indication of the widespread wind, that wind will start to
slack enup. totals unreal as we head to saturday morning, we could see five inches of rainfall, that is where the rivers are a concern. the russian river at 5.55 feet and expected to crest at 21.6 feet, that is close to flood stage, we do not think it will get there at the current moment. nonetheless, if you live in the north bay, watch for that. and on your seven-day forecast, we keep the chances of thunderstorms in here as we head to thursday, we will look at another strong storm on friday and then another system as we head into this weekend, so with so many storms back-to-back, that is where we are concerned about the power outages and potential trees coming down, so take it slow tomorrow morning, guys. >> very good advice, thank you, jeff. >> we are back in a moment.
the california breast cancer mapping project found that some counties had cancer rates that were 10% to 20% higher than the state average. this information gathered between 2000 skand, 2008. the risk factors are more common among higher income women. but this is all just a correlation, not a cause. the study cannot name a cause for the increased rate at this point. we are back in a moment.
that? and nobody thought that the bruins would actually throw the game, almost nobody. >> wouldn't you rather play stanford than oregon? >> no, it didn't matter. we wanted to win the game today, and we didn't do it, we came up short. but to say that our efforts did not get their best effort. >> i'm saying you can arrange the game and how it's played. that's what i'm saying. >> i never stepped on field. >> you did it in the nfl. >> don't look around for help, you are over here. >> you are making a statement, i don't know if there's a question in there. >> you can comment on the statement. >> i will comment on the question. this is a press conference where you ask questions, if you want to come up here, here, here there's a seat here and a seat
here, i would love you to have you up here. sure i would, you do don't scare me. >> all right, high entertainment value. how about the 49ers locking up one of the all pro defenders coming to terms with bowman on a 5-year contract extension through 2018, that is the good news. the bad news, running back hunter out of the season with a lower leg injury. and this little more lighthearted as the rockets/raptors game, that is a rebound put in the wrong bacteribasket. you do not get two points for that either, embarrassing but he had a great game, so you can live with it. and there's this, the former linebacker, harris is running to replay jesse jackson, jr. in illinois. pete shuler also a congressman

[ male announcer ] the united mileageplus explorer card. the mileage card with special perks on united. get it and you're in.
>> before we go a last check to storm heading into the bay area, the wind that will be here around 8 or 9 in the morning all over the bay area. >> that is right, we will see the winds up to 50 miles an hour. you can see the camera shaking around at the moment. let's go to san jose, and well, road crews are busy down there, you see flashing lights in the center of your screen, likely
getting ready for what is likely to be a wet commute tomorrow, there's the weather system, it's huge, stretching up to the northwest and here are the buoy reports, anywhere from 20-35 miles an hour. up to the northern coast line, we are seeing the stronger winds at the current moment. let's look at what we can expect, some of the strongest rain, and the wind will come at about 8:00, 9:00 and 10:00, and by the afternoon, it will calm down and get a break, we cannot rule out a few isolated thunderstorms that could pop up. then for thursday, a chance of the thunderstorms will linger and by friday, this that is in that second round arriving, and that is when we may have flooding issues and potentially some power outages, we will have more coming up at 4:30. >> thanks for watching us tonight. >> bye-bye drive safe.
